We received a great service from Zak and him team when selling our property with them. very helpful and communicative through the whole process and managed a quick and painless sale.

My experience with Abbotts has been consistently miserable:
1. I wanted to arrange a viewing (to buy) at a property in Girton and was told that I would have to wait 3 weeks as the tenants were away. When I arrived at the appointment I found that the property had been sold during that time!
2. Before looking for properties to buy, we let a property through Abbotts. They initially quoted fees of over £600 to photocopy a tenancy agreement, more than double of any of their competitors. When challenged they reduced the fees to £300, still more than their competitors. I hate to think that people actually fall for this.
3. As a part of the fees we paid for a moving in inventory. We were pressed to sign a document saying that we had seen this and agreed to it. When I asked to see it I was given an OLD inventory and finally the agent confessed to having forgeten to arrange it! By this point we were already moved in so the subsequent inventory was redundant, leaving both the landlord and us exposed.
Abbotts, in my opinion, are an unpleasant combination of greedy and incompetent. I will not view any properties that they advertise and I make my feeling known to everyone I know. This industry needs an overhaul.
